Cinnamon sugared walnuts

These Cinnamon sugared walnuts are addictive, delicious and super super sweet.

Cinnamon sugared walnuts
I have just finished making a batch of these Cinnamon sugared walnuts. Not only they were simple and easy but super delicious. I could not get enough…this is not good! They are super addictive. I know they have tons of sugar but once in a while is OK to indulge. I also used unrefined sugar so that is a tad better, don’t you think?

The reason for making these Cinnamon sugared walnuts was that I wanted to give them away. I package them in cellophane bags as a gift to one of my friends. She has been kind enough to drop off and pick up my son to and from school while recuperating from surgery.

She also brought me this amazing chicken noodle soup, which I will be posting the recipe when ever I get a chance. It was the best chicken noodle soup ever…

I guess you can make this recipe with which ever nuts you may prefer. I think with peanuts it will be really good. That is what I am going to do next time. I think cashews would be fantastic.

Until then, enjoy these Cinnamon sugared walnuts.

Cinnamon sugared walnuts

Yield: 10 servings


1 lb whole walnuts
1 1/2 cups unrefined sugar
1 cup milk, I used low fat milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a saucepan combine the sugar, milk, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk over medium high heat until all of the ingredients are combined completely, then stop stirring and bring to a boil. Boil the mixture gently until it reaches 235-245 degrees (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes. I actually reached 240 for mine.

Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Add walnuts working as quickly as possible to coat them all.

Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Break apart any big chunks and allow to cool completely.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  10. Impressive! I know my kids would love these too.

  11. Mmmm I love homemade graham crackers! Yours look fantastic! And what a cute little helped you had to make these :D

  12. yum! I’ve seen quite a few recipes for graham crackers but I like that your’s has molasses in them! :) I’m curious though as to why there isn’t any graham flour in them? is it because graham flour is not as good nutritionally? what about using graham flour for part of the whole wheat?
    Yep… I’m full of questions today. LOL
    I really am going to try these though. They sound too yummy to pass up. :)

  13. patty,

    Graham flour is a type of whole wheat flour. I have actually never bought it before but I am most certain that you can sub for some in the recipe :-). Let me know how they turn out when you make them!!

  14. Thank you for this recipe! I have bought whole wheat graham crackers and they were awful! I found your recipe searching via Pinterest for whole grain crackers/snacks I could make. I tried these out and my three kids LOVED them! So nice to have another whole grain snack for them. Checking out your FB page, now! :)

  15. Trina,

    thank you so much for your feedback. I am happy your three boys enjoy them :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. Do you think I could use honey instead of molasses or is that a pretty crucial ingredient???

    I love graham crackers, and can’t wait to try this!!!!!

  17. I am excited to make these for my kids! Thanks for the recipe!

    I have everything on hand except for three ingredients: whole wheat pastry flour (I have whole wheat flour, coconut flour, almond flour, and spelt flour…no pastry flour, though), molasses, and oat bran. Are there substitutions I can use for these, or should I make a trip to the store? :-)

    Thank you!

  18. You can use the whole wheat flour however since it is not the pastry flour one you may need a little bit less as the regular whole wheat flour will make the dough a bit dryer. Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  19. These look so good! Is there any substitute for the coconut oil? I don’t really care for the flavor of coconut so am nervous to try the oil.

  20. can you make it with less oil?

  21. you’re awesome!!! love every recipe!!! I haven’t done anything yet but soon and will.. this es exactly the food I want my family to eat.

  22. Wow! Was linked here via sugar free mum. I can’t eat wheat so substituted the flour and oat bran with a mix of rice flour, besan flour, tapioca flour, hazelnut meal and puffed amaranth and subbed out the molasses for all honey and the coconut oil for all olive oil (coconut oil doesn’t sit right with me) and they taste amazing! I’m in Australia so not exactly sure if the taste resembles graham crackers but they taste so yummy. I have been struggling to make crackers for some time with my ingredients requirements and although I changed these a lot they are a win! So thanks.
    Just need to work on my more even rolling pin skills and even cutting so they look as perfect as yours.

    • That is awesome. With all of the substitutions you made I am glad they came out good. For sure I would love to try the combo of flours you used in this. It sounds amazing. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I really appreciate it :-)

  23. My Dough mixed up too wet….I added 1/8 c more of the flour. It seemed easier to handle,
    After the rollout, hard to spatula off the plastic without distorting the shape, or folding up.

  24. Looks great! Is there something I can use in place of oat bran? Wheat germ maybe?

  25. Hi! Is there anything I can sub for oatbran? I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks :)

  26. Excellent!! Made them tonight and they are amazing! I used flax for most of the oil to increase the fiber, and whey instead of water. Had to add a few extra tablespoons of whey to compensate for the flax, but the dough turned out great. So easy to roll and transfer to the cookie sheet. Will definitely make again! Thanks!

  27. You are the best, I will try each of your recipes and will comment on each too.

    My kid loved the cracker, and thanks again for this wonderful page.

  28. Wanted to make these for my daughter with Celiac. Any way to make them gluten free? Thanks

  29. do you know the serving size and calorie content for each serving?

  30. I made these finally and I’m glad I did, they turned out great! My 3 yr old son loves them! I appreciate that you included the nutritional information. thanks! 
    I put these on parchment and then easily transferred to my cookie sheet. Next i’m going to try with animal cookie cutters…

  31. Very good natural tips for preventing mosquitoes. We are dealers of mosquito net for windows and these nets are also natural. They do not have any harmful chemicals and not have any repellent materials. One should not use mosquito repellents because they are harmful and it can get into our body while breathing. The tips you have mentioned are very true and useful. Thanks.
